Eva secretary

Designed over six months and handcrafted in one, the Eva secretary from Valerian Papillier is a modern view of a classic writing table. It features two hand-crafted, dove-tail jointed drawers with hand-made, full-length runners, a side-lock and two flexible LED lights, fixed through hidden magnets on different spots of the table. The secretary has two functions: the first as a work place with the open leaf, and the second as a stocking area or decorative stand once the leaf is closed.

Icon is a minimalist secretary designed for the smaller home need. It is completely made of birch plywood, factory-coated with a glossy white melamin film. The main surface is decked with brown linoleum, for a softer touch and a better up-keep.

Built with a dimmable 4000K LED light (touch-controled) it brings an ideal additional source of lightning to the room. The lamp is also linked with two power plugs placed next to the main board, easing the power supply.
